Feat: Lords and Ladies

In my home setting elves are fey with a strong link to the historical view of what an elf was like.  My view is very similar to the one in Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett.  This feat allows elves to become more like their ancestors. TRUE ELF Prerequisite Elf Your link to the original […]

FEAT: PEASENT BUSHI

This is a thematic feat for the fighter class.  It fits in with the 1e Oriental Adventures description of a bushi, and also has historical roots.  However, the original bushi class is not different enough from the fighter martial archetypes to really be its own archetype.  However this will help make your peasant fighter more flavourful.  PEASENT BUSHI […]

CHARACTER RACE: HENGEYOKAI

Continuing our delve into the lands of Oriental Adventures which began with my reimagining of the korobokuru as nopon for D&D 5e.  I was inspired after playing Fire Emblem Fates to re-read all the 1e, 2e and 3e Oriental Adventures material which further stirred me to update some of the races and classes for 5e.  I included a dire […]

FEAT: CYPHER THIEF

I got this idea from video games actually, specifically the PS4 game Horizon.  The idea here is that once a large enemy is damaged enough the Cypher Thief can yank bits of the robot apart and use it during the battle against the robot.  The idea of Cyphers I “stole” from Numenera CYPHER THIEF You have […]
